Possible Suicide Bombing Kills 23 at a Mosque in Pakistan

A powerful explosion detonated by someone suspected of being a suicide bomber ripped through a Shiite mosque filled with hundreds of worshipers in the eastern city of Sialkot on Friday, killing at least 23 people and wounding more than 60, Pakistani officials said. The attack came five days after Pakistani law enforcement authorities said they had killed Amjad Hussain Farooqi, whom they described as one of the country’s most wanted terrorists and a top operative of Al Qaeda. No one claimed responsibility for the bombing, but Pakistani officials speculated that the attack could have been a response to Mr. Farooqi’s killing last Sunday.Full Story
